Oppsss.. He Did It Again

Toledo settles suit tied to unpaid loan


"A man who claims he was placed incorrectly on
Toledo's "Deadbeat Dozen" list a year ago settled his lawsuit against
the city for $5,000, according to the city's law department."


"He filed for bankruptcy protection against his creditors - including the city - in 2005.
But in January, 2007, Mayor Finkbeiner included Mr. Parr and his
business on a list of 11 businesses that owed the city money. Mr.
Finkbeiner vowed to take legal action against the businesses, which he
dubbed the "Deadbeat Dozen.""


"But Mr. Parr and his attorney, David Shook, said only a public apology
would restore his reputation. When that did not happen, Mr. Parr sued
the city and Mr. Finkbeiner for slander, libel, and negligent
infliction of emotional distress.


Although Mr. Parr's lawsuit originally asked for more than $25,000, he
settled for $5,000, according to Toledo Law Director John Madigan."



No votes yet

"Daryle Parr, former owner of Parr Empact LLC, didn't deny that he
failed to pay back a $15,000 loan from the city. But in a lawsuit filed
in January, 2007, he claimed he never should have been targeted by
Mayor Carty Finkbeiner's program to shame debtors because he already
had filed for bankruptcy protection.

If he declared bankruptcy, doesn't he either need to settle that debt with the city or face liquidation of his assets? His business went under in 1996 and he filed personal bankruptcy in 2005, citing the City of Toledo as one of his creditors. This seems like the legal equivalent of a friend getting pissed when you bring up that ten spot he still owes you.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

you're not to be bothered. That's where the courts come in. It's the courts that delegate the responsibility as to how the debt is settled, not the creditors.

From Wikipedia: During the pendency of a bankruptcy proceeding the debtor is protected from most non-bankruptcy legal action by creditors through a legally imposed stay. Creditors cannot pursue most types of lawsuits, garnish wages, or attempt to compel payment.

Nope, this is an administrative error on the part of the city.

and has the fastest gun in town. He just cannot seem to shoot straight.


I wondered why you morons keep taxing yourselves.

I just assumed that the highest un-employment rate in Ohio meant that there were more bums NOT working who voted to tax the "producers" in Toledo.

Now I realize that you ALL know that Toledo pisses away money like a drunken sailor in a brothel.

GOD I am so glad I moved before the 1st Carty fiasco.
I saw the signs:
"Carty for Strong Mayor. Scary, isn't it?"

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a

... that anyone would consider Mr Daryle Parr to have a suitable reputation in the first place. Would YOU loan the man money? Anyone who wipes away debts in such a way doesn't strike me as a reputable person in the first place.

That's just my opinion, of course. You can think what you like about this guy.

You gotta admire the brass 1's of a guy that sues and wins against the city for calling his debts bad....after all, they were. But then again...who is Carty to call someone out for being "Dirty"? He scrapes his shoes on the backs of people all the time.

(mostly so he can reach down and twist the knife)
